WINTER SHELTER

Saving lives in cold rainy weather

From Jan.-April* we provide temporary emergency shelter for up to 50 men and women, totaling over 250 individuals annually. Guests stay overnight, receive a hot dinner, breakfast, boxed lunch and a shower. 

* In light of Covid, we are committed to staying open as long as the shelter in place orders stand.

HOPE PROGRAM

One Step at a Time

During Summer and Fall, our HOPE Program serves up to 30 unhoused individuals, providing temporary interim shelter and a 1:1 mentor who helps support the guests' own life plan. The program's aim is to help create stability for our guests and allow them to pursue goals such as stable housing, financial security, personal well-being, job placement and empowerment training.

DAILY DROP-IN SHOWER PROGRAM

For guests and all unhoused

Showers are available for those in need of one- including guests, people who live outside, in their cars, or for those who have no shower access where they're housed. Daily services include showers, laundry, boxed lunch, water and hygiene supplies.

 

POSITIVE OUTCOMES

WINTER SHELTER

With 84% of the unhoused living without shelter in Santa Clara County (the highest in the nation) and with the annual death rate of the unhoused dramatically increasing each year, we:

* are literally saving lives

* have served 2300 total guests

* ensure that staff and guests work in collaboration with each other, rather than from a place of hierarchy 

HOPE PROGRAM

Recent improvements to this innovative program have allowed the vast majority of our participants to:

* find a higher paying job

* find housing

* receive better medical care

* reconnect with family 

* create a greater level of stability

Key to this is by matching a community partner to accompany the HOPE guest in their pursuits.

DAILY DROP-IN SHOWER PROGRAM

Improved hygiene leads to better health. Grace Solutions provides a hygiene program to the unhoused on a drop in basis.

We offer basic human needs that most of us take for granted. Including:

* bathrooms

* hand washing

* dental maintenance

* showers

* laundry

* boxed lunch & water

* hygiene supplies available if needed

* We provide over 150 showers/week

 

TESTIMONIALS

What They’re Saying

Dana

Dana, a guest in our winter shelter, was recently laid off from his job. He says he feels respected by everyone here, like he's part of a family. It is safe, clean and free from the typical drama in most shelters. He is grateful for having a place where his basic needs are being met and he can focus on getting work. 

Jackie

Jackie, a volunteer, shared that the winter shelter program provides a safe space for many people who are grateful for the community. It provides more than just shelter from the weather - it supports a sense of connection and stability for many during these uncertain and challenging times.
